This TV commercial appears in context as it was originally broadcast in 1963. We begin with a station identification for the ABC show "Channing" which then leads into the Bufferin ad. Then a brief fade-in to the program. This was back in the days when an ad break was only 60 seconds. Time for one commercial or two short ones. A one-hour program was 55 minutes with 5 minutes of ads. Today you get 45 minutes of show and 15 minutes of ads. That's progress.

Introducing the 1967 Dodge Dart GT, a sleek compact convertible. Amazing how sporty and cool this looked back in the '60s. Sadly, by the '70s just about everything cool from the '60s was revamped and ruined. In 1973 my parents bought a new Dart, and it was the most boring conservative car imaginable. Thank you, Chrysler motors. Pamela Austin, the perky spokesperson, was the "Dodge Rebellion Gal" in over a dozen television ads from 1966 and 1967. The campaign had a faint...

Four television commercials featuring popular actress Teri Garr. The first three are from the ealy '70s before she became a star. The last one is from the mid-'90s. Although Garr came to resent her wholesome housewife image, it certainly helped pay the bills until she went on to feature films -- where she played mostly housewives. These are for: MJB Coffee (partial), Glade air freshener, and a 1970 Safeguard ad that also includes a pre-mustache Tom Selleck and Penny Marshall. The cabbie is...

ABC-TV network promos for the 1965-66 season. Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea, The FBI (black & white ads with "in color" tags), Twelve O'Clock High, and two short-lived flops: The Legend of Jessie James and A Man Called Shenandoah (a high-concept western about a man with amnesia). Plus another FBI spot and product ads for Breck. Last, two unusual promos with "Honey West" stars Anne Francis and John Ericson. The actors endure what must have been a long and humiliating...

More product ads from sponsors of the 1965-1966 season of ABC's "Honey West" series. These are: Sucrets, Carnation Instant Breakfast, Coffee-Mate creamer, Cover Girl, Sylvania flash cubes, and cigarette ads for Pall Mall and Tareyton. The Pall Mall ad is the most interesting for its blatant snob appeal. A group of elite, rich, white people take a break from their fancy hobby (re-enacting a Revolutionary War battle) for a cigarette. But only the highest quality smoke will do. Their...

Five product ads, a network promo, and a PSA. All of these ran during the 1965-1966 season of ABC's "Honey West". Sponsors: Hunt's Catsup, Wesson oil, Maybelline (remember "Mabelline eyes"?), and Wilkinson razor blades. Promo for "The FBI" series features Efrem Zimbalist Jr. as "Lou Erskine" (TV's first hero with a Jewish name) and glimpses of guest villains Robert Duvall and Ted Knight. The ads are all in black & white but this promo boasts an... ( 3 reviews ) Topics: tv, television, advertising, 1960s, promos, ads, classic, vintage
(Public domain clips) From 1963: end of "Channing" (w/Shatner) leads into Heinz Ketchup ad, Channing preview (with Suzanne Pleshette), sponsor bits, ABC Thursday promos: The Flintstones, The Donna Reed Show, and My Three Sons. Enjoy. Origin: I have a complete broadcast copy of one episode of "Channing" with the original 1963 commercials so, these ads can be seen in context. Did the same in another posting of Yvonne Craig in a Viceroy ad. Heinz ketchup: "The red magic...

Public Domain clips: Super rare bit from 1963 drama "Channing" with guest star William Shatner leads into Viceroy ad with lovely Yvonne Craig four years before she became the mega-hottie Batgirl on Batman. It's enough to make you want to start smoking. ( 3 reviews ) Topics: television, advertising, cigarettes, tv, '60s, 1960s, ad, ads, promos, vintage, commercial
A short string of vintage television ads: Superman star George Reeves for Frosted Flakes (1950s), three for Batman -- the last one introduces Yvonne Craig as Batgirl (Holy femininity!). A few fragments that show the influence of the '60s spy craze: Bond bread, 007 cologne, "Odd Job" for Vicks Formula. Finally, Nancy Sinatra for RC Cola when they sponsored her 1967 "Movin' with Nancy" special. Topics: tv, television, advertising, 1960s, promos, spies, James Bond, ads

A Classic Sixties Commercial for "Camay Soap". Sorry for the abysmal sound quality. A very charming if unimportant commercial. Not "Great", but certaining enjoyable.
